Loren graduated from Harper High School and immediately joined the Navy and served in the Pacific during WW II. After the war he returned to Kansas. Loren had a long, proud, and dedicated career at Cessna Aircraft in Wichita where he worked from 1957 until his retirement in 1993.

A memorial service will be held for Loren on Saturday August 29th at 1 PM at the United Methodist Church in Harper, Kansas.
